Test Prep

Preparing for your tests is important. We've created guides to help you prepare for your tests.

Choose a Major

Visit the Counseling Center to help you figure out what to do - and how to do it. There are also Major Workshops offered throughout the semester - check InsideBC (Student Tab) for more information.

Check our available degrees & certificates.

My Degree Path

Log in to InsideBC (Student Tab) and check out My Degree Path on the lower right hand side. It will show you a worksheet for an audit of the program you've selected in your most recent admission/update form. If you're actually pursuing a different degree and major, go to Window #1 in the Office of Admissions & Records to have your program changed.

You can also explore other options, by selecting "What-If" from the list on the left side of the page.
